April 2017 - Editorial

Dear PowerPlant Chemistry readers:

Our journal is not only an international platform to publish articles for a global audience, it also serves to connect people in the power industry so they can share their experience in water/steam chemistry. From time to time we also get the chance to help recruit power plant chemists for leading positions in generation companies. I kindly recommend to all of you that you study the job advertisement on page 103 of this issue. I'm convinced that amongst our readership there are chemists suitable for this highly responsible position.

But not only do we connect power plant chemists and generation companies – we also organize events all around the globe to actively push the exchange between the experts in the field.

This autumn we will be holding two such events. In Bangkok as well as in Dubai we are organizing a two-day forum where invited keynote speakers will present case studies from power plants all around the world. Unlike in the seminars in the past, in this forum the attendees will have much more time to discuss similar cases/problems from their plants with the plenum and the invited experts. To complete the list of speakers, we are still looking for additional presentations and speakers for the two events. Please see the call for papers for Bangkok (page 90) and for Dubai (page 91) in this issue. For more information and abstract submittal, please contact me directly.

Another conference I would like to mention here is the Fourth Meeting of the EHF (European HRSG Forum). The conference will be taking place in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, on May 16–18, 2017. PowerPlant Chemistry is the media partner of this event, so mark it in your calendar – the details can be found on page 86.

I would also like to draw your attention to this year's conferences and meetings. Our events calendar aims to be as informative as possible. We try to list all important events in all power plant chemistry areas from all over the world. As we can't have our eyes and ears everywhere, it is possible that we might overlook one event or another; if you think that there is an important event missing, please let us know!

I'm looking forward to your letters and e-mails!
